Product Description


This beautifully illustrated book for children ages five years old and up, tells the story of a great saint, who devoted her life to God, and to others.

Amongst the slums of Calcutta, Mother Teresa offered a comfort-ing smile, consoling arms, soothing hands, a kind look thatgave dignity, tears of compassion, and the light of Jesus in thedarkness of great poverty. She saw God in the poorest of thepoor; she cherished them and became a mother to all. She is apowerful witness that Űwhatever we do for one of the least ofour brothers, we do for JesusŲ (cf. Matthew 25:40)

Mother Teresa of Calcutta founded an order of sisters to work with herto serve the poorest of the poor, the Missionaries of Charity.When she died in 1997 at the age of eighty-seven, thegovernment of India honored her with a state funeral. A mil-lion people lined the streets that day to honor their belovedsaint. Her tomb swiftly became a place of prayer for people ofall faiths, rich and poor alike.
Mother Teresa will be canonized a Saint by Pope Francis onSeptember , 2016.
